Course
Overview

The overarching goal of this course is to help leaders breakthrough burnout, build resilience and take back control of their professional and personal lives. Over 60% of leaders report workplace stress as the number one source of burnout. Remote and hybrid working environments are in many cases adding to the stress burden when the lines between home and work become blurred; work stress becomes life stress.

Some level of stress can be quite healthy. It can actually increase your overall work effectiveness and life satisfaction. But when our stress level, in any area of life, exceeds our ability to cope, this is when it becomes problematic. And the negative impact can accelerate rapidly. Stress is your body’s internal alarm system that keeps a pulse on your safety. It signals your mind and body to respond when change occurs, whether that change be expected or unexpected. Your body responds to these changes physically, mentally, emotionally, and behaviorally.

The good news is you have a choice. How and when you choose to respond to stress could make the difference between calm and chaos. In this course you will learn:

  • How to develop self-awareness and mastery of your mind.
  • How to minimize the stress YOU place upon others.
  • How to identify the overt and subtle sources of stress in your life.
  • To eliminate and/or reduce stressors where possible.
  • To develop coping mechanisms that increase your stress management capability.
  • To develop a personal plan for permanent stress mastery.

As in all Infopro Learning workshops, diverse methodologies that appeal to adult learning styles are incorporated into this program. This workshop includes pre-work assignments, facilitated discussions, case studies, individual and small-group work, and other tools to assist participants in applying learning to their jobs.

Organizational Impact

Leaders become more conscious of interactions between various sources of stress in every area of their lives.

Leaders become more self-aware of how THEY may inadvertently create stress for others in every area of their lives.

Stress becomes viewed as a potential positive resources to drive innovation and job satisfaction, when properly managed.

Communication is improved at every level of the organization resulting in fewer misunderstandings and stressful conflicts.

Leaders who are emotionally self-aware become “models” for other employees to develop a similar level of self-awareness.
